Princess Marie-Chantal wears many hats (or rather crowns), including Crown Princess of Greece, Princess of Denmark, mother of five, wife, entrepreneur, and hostess extraordinaire – to name a few. In 2000, she founded the international childrenswear brand Marie-Chantal and since then her line has grown to include two London stores, distribution at Saks Fifth Avenue, Selfridges, and Harrods, along with the honor of dressing some of the most stylish littles in the world. Here, she takes us behind the brand and shares some of her hosting tips, just in time for the holidays!
The Marie-Chantal brand is?
A luxury lifestyle children’s brand where we design and curate beautiful collections for the parent and child who love a classic yet contemporary wardrobe.
My latest collection was inspired by?
The Autumn/Winter collection is called “Sister Sister,” which is a nod to my two sisters and growing up in the Far East, reminiscing about how my mother dressed three little girls in beautiful Liberty prints and classic Harris tweeds.
A typical day in the life of Princess Marie-Chantal includes?
Breakfasts with the kids, school drop offs, and meetings with my creative team to go over everything from design, to merchandising, to blog stories. I'm usually home by 4:00pm, and if I stay home I'll cook dinner for the kids or have an evening out with my husband. Before bed is an episode of “The Crown,” which I am currently obsessed with!
The book I currently can't put down is?
“A Man Called Ove”
One thing that most people don't know about me is?
I love cooking; I learnt to cook at the famous Escoffier in Paris when I was 20.
